Well we have a new release candidate for DTX1 firmware. This new version automatically optimises the use of bandwidth when a dual channel unit is in use, so avoiding tedious bit rate calculations and manual setitngs.
If anyone would like to volunteer to give it a thrashing please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send a copy. If there is a larger response we may post it on the DTX1.info web site.
It would be good to get this signed off before the next batch of units is built, which is imminent.
Also, a new Windows utility to make the process of upgrading the DTX1 much easier.
You can get both at www.dtx1.info/downloads/Beta
We have added the ability to switch the LCN transmission format to suit various world regions (default suits the UK) so as - hopefully - to co-exist with off-air channels should the two RF signals be combined locally.
Also, the setting menus have been speeded up and the bandwidth available for video better utilised, having reduced the amount of traffic carrying SI tables etc.
Please let us know how you get on through BATC the forum!
Time for dinner.....
Some nice improvements from the older FW. version I had on mine.
Auto max. encoder Bit rate setting - saves adjusting the encoder rate if you change the SR or the FEC.(but you can also manually set the rate if you need to)
Entering of PIDS is now by digit replacement method rather than scrolling through a possibly large range (0000 > FFFF) : big improvement!
Some changes in the status page
Upload this version if you have the earlier version(s).......
As all comments have been positive, we have now released this firmware formally, it's on the DTX1 support site. I shall be at Newark on Saturday (BATC stand) if anyone wants an upgrade doing!
